"Why. Don't you tell everyone kind of how you came up. And discovered the moses code like how did you come up with this. How did you discover it. And what is the moses. Go okay. I it's a funny story That has a very funny ending I remember a year or so before that There was a movie that came out I don't think very many people saw it was a movie called the secret and of course almost everyone has seen it and this was right at the beginning and i remember watching thinking two things number one. This is a very good movie and a lot of people are going to see it. And i really felt like the movie stopped short and fac in from my perspective. It chronicled what. I call the egos law of attraction which is based on. How do i use spiritual law to get what i don't have in somehow field feel fulfilled and i knew that what was really needed was to take it one more step. It was a wonderful first step but the next step was. How do we manifest from the level of soul not from the level of ego which is based not on what i can get but what i can give is not so much focused on riches but richness and less upon goods and more upon goodness because of course when we have richness in our lives and goodness in our lives will then everything else follows and we find ourselves fulfilled on levels.

These beautiful mexican families that surround us. And i know many people who have extreme abundance and they're poor and so the moses code is meant to take us to the level of soul so that we can become the source of that goodness and it goes back historically thirty five hundred years and what i always like to say is that this was a code. That was lost thirty five hundred years ago and it is the most powerful manifestation tool in the history of the

Margaret died at the age of eighty four when James Charlotte welcomed their first child in September of eighteen o six they named Margarita an honor, the deceased matriarch of the family. James in Charlotte had nine children total. There was Charlotte who died in Childhood Harriet James Junior Robert Bridges Sarah Louisa, Mary, Isabella Thomas Willing, and William. Yet many of those names you will recognize because he often would named people after patrons, mentors, people who were important to him and his family. Fortunes business model as he ran the sail loft in support of his growing family was really progressive. He hired both black and white employees to work in his loft, and there was no separation along race lines and his business flourished for the first nine years so much so that he was sometimes referenced in the press and travelogues as this example of black prosperity in Philadelphia. Of course, ignores the fact that like he was a complete outlier. They kind of used him like, no, you could have the dream fulfilled and it's like well, yes.

Historical record you're reading and which one any given individual in that family favored although they were black James had an aunt who purchased enslaved people. This was not exactly uncommon in Philadelphia. And other cities in slave labor was so much a part of the cultural and economic norms at the time that almost anyone with any kind of financial stability or wealth was probably involved in enslavement back to the relationship between Robert Bridges and James. Corden bridges even purchased a house in James Thornton's name and he trained to become an expert designer and sailmaker. This was all pretty unusual for a number of reasons other than the ones that we've just mentioned first Ford was the only free. Person Working in the sail loft other black men worked there but they were all enslaved additionally Robert Bridges and his wife Jemima had children of their own and if things had progressed in the usual way, one of the bridges sons would have been the one taking over the family business but that did not happen in seventeen eighty, six bridges promoted jams, Fortin to foreman. And then he was made junior partner and in part this was Robert Bridges who had done very well for himself over the years He had made additional money in private tearing by a purchasing private tearing even though he himself did not ever sale on them. He was kind of Angling for his sons to become merchants and not tradesman he wanted to push them. Up The socioeconomic ladder and so in wishing to advance the position of his children, Robert had created a space where James was the one that was on a path to take over the business one day. But to be clear James was a hard worker he was very good at what he did the time he spent on a C. informed his work with practical knowledge. And experience that even Robert Bridges didn't have and he took on greater and greater responsibility the lofts clients recognize the James Sporting knew what he was talking about all those some accounts of his life include mentioned that he patented a sale management system There are no records to indicate that that was actually the case.

"Phones parents are a little bit mysterious as well in terms of the details of their life, his father who is sometimes referred to as Thomas Fortune was according to. James born a Freeman Thomas was educated enough to read and write. He was a sailmaker by trade that will come up again and he worked for a man named Robert Bridges Bridges was born to Irish parents in the colonies and over time he became quite wealthy in. His business, and so he both employed free black craftsmen. At least we know of Thomas and then later on, we'll talk about his relationship with James but he also had enslaved black people working in his sale oft as well. We also don't have a lot of information on James's Mother Margaret. It's believed that she was in her mid forties James was born and we don't know anything else about her. We don't know whether she was ever enslaved. No biography there yet the background is not there. It's interesting because she lived for quite a while and lived with James, but it was all of her story is pretty much focused on on James's story, and so we don't know what her personal life was like before she became a wife and mother. But as a child James Sometimes accompanied his father when he went to bridges shop to work. In the sail loft and James would have been given assorted tasks, they're like sweeping and sometimes sorting scraps for potential recycling to see if they were big enough to use for a patch, he also made prepared beeswax for the sale makers to run their sewing thread through but eventually young James did learn to so sales and the idea in all of this was that James was going to be. Completely prepared to support himself through stable and lucrative trade. This was all very deliberately done by his father Thomas Thinking about his family's financial stability also went way beyond teaching James Trade.

I. Think you have to be yet to be willing to have the hard conversation is so I, it is hard for a lot of people because it becomes comfortable but I loved the question like what what, where do you stand but I don't care I don't want you to tell me you're a Democrat you're Republican. You're this or that. I don't WanNA label. I WanNa know what you think right and I think it's interesting because even in even because if you take a hundred Democrats you take one hundred Republicans and you you ask them like really crazy like like in-depth questions like we'll tell me tell me what you're worried about on a day to day basis. Not I'm not talking about solving the world's problems on on a political spectrum.

"I'm they probably should. I don't think they do so. You know. There's that I mean the fact is. Don't know people. WHO HAVE! An enormous amount of influence in terms of. Our sway. In the world. Don't really think about how. How far they words are reaching the clever ones that some of the evil ones do. They figured it out, you know. But. Look. The problem is that if you want to change society your words. Your deeds have got to reach deep into the bowels into the guts of whatever organization is involved so that the producer of you know podcast fifty nine and the producer of CNN you know works that might night shifts in the produce of Fox News whoever? Is getting the message, so they don't. Follow the crowd and just do the same story that the other guy did. I mean that's really the problem I mean it's very unusual for me to get ask these kinds of questions that you're asking because a lot of the people who create the news or who follow the news I just don't do their homework. I've done many. Many not does hundreds of interviews oftentimes people just not prepared. Data's don't do the homework you know. When I was at Columbia one of the things that they've really been forced on us was they made us get ready for interviews? If you weren't ready for interviews and you brought your story back and it wasn't good. They descent you out. Made you do it again? Of course she didn't like it, but you did it. You know nowadays I you know I'm interview by doesn't does the journalists who oftentimes it just don't even do the homework I understand you don't have time to read the book Talk Understand, but you can tell a lot of monitoring the homework out in the real world you know in the you know with the with the fifteen minute bit with someone takes a bit a piece of Shit. Excuse my language and just blows it up into nothingness. That's passed around the world. Two hundred million kids in the world go to bed hungry every night. His millions, I go to bed. Hungry. Overnight in this country will argue about some tweet of feet or something. I. Don't WanNa. Hear that. You know look. You're going to be a reporter. Do the job if you're GONNA win with the Mantle of First Amendment. The fourteenth amendment is that so many people died for. When you suit up, you better suit up all the way. Put socks on and push his sword on. Go out there in. Do the job. Don't do a half way job. Doesn't help. That's why Donald. Trump became president because that's one reason. Is Report. Is The you know they weren't enough of a sounded hitting it hard. I'll tell you something else. That was interesting. I was thinking about this yesterday. Since I'm blowing off so much steam, I don't know why. But there was A. Princess Di was killed. And was she died. She died in a car accident. They know and they will pictures of her. You know what really people were yelling and screaming about photographers took our picture and one of the photographer, said something I'll never forget. He said I went angle to take pictures of the civil war there and nobody bought them. He said people buying pictures of the Angolan war. The winning goal I would I would be shooting those pictures. They don't buy those pictures. These are the kinds of pictures they buy. So as much as we want. A Yellen ran screaming about Donald Trump and all that you know. Whatever else did you know we? We have problems with by you. Know the place. Of The militarization of Police Department the answer begins right at home with all of us. In know what do we do who we pay attention to? What do we? What do we support? Have we voted those kinds of questions? A lot of us. You know a moving in that direction break. I'm delighted about that. And, that's really doesn't have anything to. My generation is done. That's really coming from. Young People You know yeah now. I completely agree Adam inspired to see that and also agree that. He kind of comes full circle to. The beginning of conversation where you know so much of the of the answer is a return to understanding you know family. However, you define that in community, however, you define that and the roles that we all have and. You know the freedom that we had and the by actually stepping into a place of share responsibility, whether it's with your biological family or chosen family, your religious family, your local community, whatever it is and I feel like we're. I don't know if you're seeing the same thing, but I feel like we're seeing people start. To, look back at that and say we need to reexamine this and maybe a bit of a reclamation of that as more of like a governing part of life I. Agree I think that that's what we are seeing, and it's I never thought I'd live long enough to see it just like I thought I'd never live long enough to see someone like Donald. Trump became president or Barack Obama for that matter. I mean I'm happy. That this is how yes, this is awfully terrible. It's just very painful. and. What one of the things that that comes from being? You know a so-called Christian and being involved searches that you do understand that there are lots. There's lots that you can't control. But witnessing this makes me happy. Makes me feel like you know. God is still on the throne. because. These kids these young people. They don't have to do this and they're doing it and look. There's a lot of ragging this to it. But. It doesn't matter men the ship the someone has got the wheel. They and they are spinning the wheel and the ship is turning is not. You can't stop this kind of thing. It's kind of like the Vietnam War in the net little tiny island that just you really just couldn't be taken over I mean you can't stop it when people spirit of people is greater than anything. Is Greater Than Evil and it's doesn't need a lot of fuel to run. Evil and hatred is like a diesel engine that just gulps fuel. You have to just constantly poor. You got to keep that fire going, but when something is propelled by love and decency and honor and justice true justice. It, doesn't it? Could the the caucus on popcorn?.

"The link in the show notes. I'm fascinated that You mentioned earlier like big part of the process of writing is observing is learning to see and as. And is capturing. What makes you go back and if and if you have all these and sort of like constantly observing consolation capturing. What makes you know when? Something you've written down some. You've seen something you. You've observed. needs to be expanded on needs to actually turn into something bigger, or is it just a feeling? You just start building around it and it it. It tells you. A good question I'm not really sure usually, if if it moves from if the carrots is can move easily from one room to another. Then you know that you're you're onto. you struck.

Because there are so many ingredients in that one small piece that you. You know you can. You can pretty much. Guarantee that you're going to be. Two, hundred fifty to three hundred pages and before. Before you know. Look I have plenty of books sitting around not planning, but enough story sitting around that have not been finished. And they haven't been finished because they just don't have the power. Of My. My respect and adoration of the characters and love for the story. and. It's not the wall that I'm able to push against in order to make the story happened there. And I guess really to make the story happening. I mean it's interesting. I feel like that wall has to be there. What you have to write, you know you have to have. You have to really want to let people know about. You want to tell him something. You want to share something with people that helps them. In your merchant, you just want to give away the goods. It's nice that people pay for, but you. You give it away if you could. Kind of preacher. You're kind of. Canterbury kind of. Singing Christie adjust trying to. Get people to listen because. The end result is good if they if they do. They look in the right direction. Yeah, it's interesting because you're I, know we re taught for a heartbeat about the fact that you're teaching music to kids now, also Are you still teaching writing Nyu Yeah Yeah because I'm curious because I'm. I'm fascinated by if somebody comes into a room with you what they're looking for what they think they're looking for what they think they need to actually step into this place of being a writer versus what you really feel matters. While the young right is that I need to nyu really wonderful people first of all I don't teach like honors classes. super-duper writers who are trying to be. You know rightfully super-duper publications or magazines I basically whoever signs up the first people sign up with it. Courses limit are the ones in the class, and then I just make them right. Make them write about themselves and I teach I mostly focused on structure. You know I mean because you can't really unless you can get time and place. Said sent it in your story. Nobody you just blogging. You know no matter how good you are as a writer in terms of. Like. How fashion on the Hundred Yard Dash, a book is a marathon. So you can run hundred yards and beat everybody else, but after hundred yards. I'm just GONNA. I'll be running backwards and I'll go leave you behind because you don't know how to do it. Structure so I talk about structure quite a bit and I make them write. A sentimental and make them right I. Don't talk that much. We little NICI. We read a little bit of Gary. Smith WHO'S A. Wonderful right who's worked for sports illustrated, but he didn't really write about. Sports wrote about life. And then we right, that's it you know and I hear their thoughts about things. But then we must be right about what they know. So I sent him everywhere. Send them all over the city. Send him the seven to get ice cream and cake on some of the Bronx sent him to go see with the said. We're Abbas field was go find a joke. Go get a hacker. Tell us what you see in the barber shop I make them do that. When. They're finished writing red ink, all of the pages of bloody, but the game young people you know they really are. I get a lot of inspiration from. My students at Nyu. Must, be interesting well I. Don't know if you're teaching summer classes days, but if when we come back in the fall, you know. Given the moment that this country is in right now when you step into a room of you know like. People from eighteen to twenty one years old, who really to right and and a big part of your? What you're asking them to do is go out into the world and observe and participate and understand how that comes into the classroom, the conversations in the writing with you. I only teach one course I barely have time to do that and I do it mostly because I just love the kids Manhattan. It gives me so much. Give me so much more than I. Could ever give them. When I think of young people in this country, you know when I think of these kids who meet at Nyu I'm encouraged and I'm inspired. All of this stuff that's been happening lately is just encouraging inspiring for me to witness. I'm delighted that so many young people have taken it upon themselves to to speak on behalf of people who cannot speak into try to write things at a time when so many of them are having such personal difficulty in in such deep personal challenges. Yeah, it's it's it is incredibly powerful to see what's going on and to see so many people rise up and step out and actually say things and acknowledged things and the especially when. People who feel drawn to to deeply observe and then turn that into language that somehow like what you said goes out into the world, and in some way effects, other people, the sort of a powerful place to be, but also a place where I I kind of I wonder if what the sense of responsibility that some people would feel in being the people who try and observe, and then turn that into language that goes into the world, and in some way, affects other people i. don't think that people who who do that sort of thing think that deeply.

"Mean. This takes all the fun out of life. The fact is when you create a novel. You're not creating it. You just following the people you you step into a world that. That's no longer yours and then you get a chance to see these people. Look the hard work is getting the characters to leap out the cup. Draw and start moving around. Once they start moving around. There's no work to be done other than your PGA ability as a craftsman to follow him or her as they go about their lives. True many of the paradigm, the sort of crude outlines of. Characters and plot design in digging King Kong a rooted in my life. Is boy up in a small baptist? Church in New York. But you know. I mean I didn't know these people I. Have you know organised like screw in the deacons. Might says they were proper people with that stuff going on, it's not something that I really was privy to. You know I've heard of it. You know but everybody he is of everything. You don't know what you here's true in a you. Hear rumors about this that and the other. What's important in Deacon King? Kong, and in any good story at least as far as I'm concerned. Is. that. If, the book is really good, you can tell. The writer really loves his or her character's. Rachel Kushner. Loves her characters. You know Lindsey Schreiber, who is probably I mean? I think she's kind of cynical. But she's talented. You know and you know I wish I'd written her books, but she loves her characters I I, don't. I don't agree with a cynicism, but she she understands so yeah, where the book comes from sure rooted in some of that. You know the life that my mother created this that makes sense. Yeah, it's an interesting question. Like why does why would anyone feel? Curious about. What leads somebody like the experience that led some one to create something that deeply moved them i. think my senses edge because we want to know the person better a in my case, you know. The color water was written because I simply didn't know what. But after I wrote it, I had a better idea. Deacon King Kong I really don't know what inspired me to write Honest to Jesus I. Just you know I just was laying in bed in this guy. Popped into my mind. You know, and because people I know. That who are part of the Church especially if you've Mayes, I'm sixty two I, remember back in the day when you know when you went to church. It wasn't like when you went to we went to judge wasn't like a Broadway show. You know like the band played. Now you go to church the big church. The band's playing the drums going. You know and it's all this phone. It's just like solve theater. Is is no real spiritual thing. The whole stereotype of the church. was they going? Jesus. Know people jumping around. That really wasn't how it was. How it was is that it was very quiet. And then some would stand up and they would talk. And then something else is supposed to happen, but someone else got up into his head, a word about something enduring the sick and shut in prayer lissome would stand ABS and don't forget to pray for him, and then he she would talk, and then they they might feel a song. They might start singing and everyone. Just it would strike your heart to and you would sing. And that was the most beautiful thing I used to see that when I was a boy at my mother, and when I saw that with her later on when she described going to churches, a young woman brokenhearted in May complete perfect sense. But you know you never knew where the spirit was coming from, and so the spirit of. The. You can analyze it, but it's like trying to analyze love. You love someone inexplicably great. It's like China described why Frank Sinatra was a great single. White Count Basie. Was One of the greatest bally's the world. He's just hear the music I get it. Yeah, it's so chain. They say that what the one word that I wrote down to myself after reading, it was just one word it was love, and that was the overwhelming feeling I got from it. You sure it was fun. It was like amazing characters like it felt like you were having a blast creating this like there was there was a spirit of joy that was finally three, but at the end of it like the overwhelming experience that I had was one of acceptance and love. Absolutely I mean I feel like Gabriel Garcia Marquez would use the solitude. He had a lot of fun. Until the end I don't know if he had funded. But I had a lot of fun writing this book and and the Good Labor. The GALORE was an escape for me because you know came when I was in the middle of a bribery. Very difficult divorce. My mother died and you know it was an escape for me to get away from you know. The difficulties of my life. King Kong was just. It was just the world I was so happy to be. Part of you know just it's a story that made me happy you know. And That's really kind of what it was. You have a friend of mine who writes who? Basically says he writes because there's something that needs to get out, but also because. Of the way something makes him feel while he's in the process of creation I'm curious whether you feel is at all. When you right whether something that's that's meaningful to you in like it while it's hard work, and and not all it is fun that there's a feeling of being alive when he's actually writing. That he feels, flows into an his palpable eventually, when somebody picks it up, reads or to it, I never thought of it that way as an artist. I, simply do what I can do best in. I can't imagine not writing when a living without words and without music, it would be very difficult for me. And I've been doing it so long now that I don't know how to live. I mean I walk around with the PAD in my pocket. Everywhere. And a pencil everywhere everywhere I go. And No matter what I'm even if I'm cutting the grass. Working with plant, so it doesn't matter wherever I have always have hundreds of notebooks. Laying around my house, really I just can't and I never go back to look at them. You know. I just have these ideas. I write down and I just get it, you know. But I, it's. You have to be a little bit obsessive compulsive when you're a writer..

"That's what did it. and. I I loved him. Use such a good person. And he died I was fourteen when he died. I realized that life is just going to happen. No matter what life will shove you forward. And I just decided. I really want to be journalists anymore. You know I saw a lot of people who really great, really great writers who were at the post post-summit talented people. Who are older than me? And you know how this solution they'd become. And I said I. Just don't want. You know I'd rather not happen to me. So I stepped away from it and then I you know. I collapsed into poverty, and I was broke for a long time, but I was happy. Though that's the thing you know. I remember one time. I was talking to a music publisher after I left. I was writing songs peddling my songs around, and he said to me. I said. Can you tell me what happens to a song when I sell it to you? And he got so mad because he wanted wanted. They offer me a deal to buy my songs outright. An, he got so mad he's. This is very sophisticated stuff. The new is very sophisticated stuff it's you're not really Cape Wednesday you just a song. Okay, so just write songs, and I'll make you deal and of course I. Didn't I didn't make a deal with the guy. Just listen, but you know ironically. You know I don't know six months before that I was standing in the White House would've notebook out. Listen Ronald Reagan Talk. Or Mrs Reagan I think it was Mrs Nancy Reagan and I said to myself. I'm sophisticated enough to learn this, but he just sees me as that. But I was I was humiliated, but I didn't say anything I just. I kept my thoughts myself and I just went back to work and eventually. It started to happen to make money writing songs. And I got a steady gig plan in a couple of bands and I was making it, you know. The. I guess the Journalism Bug had Kinda left you, but the writing bug definitely didn't 'cause. I guess it was that same window right when you're sort of. You're playing around full-time. You're torn when the BUG sneaks back into the to return to your mom story and and go a lot deeper into it. Wa always liked to write I always felt journalism was not creative enough to me. That's really the problem. It was just not Not that creative. So that so the color of water really gets written over a period of years when you're on the road and when you're playing music when you decide to go way deeper into this and. Which means going back to your mom, who as you shared was was pretty hesitant. The first time it was just an article and say I want to know a lot more I'm curious how she responded and how those conversations unfolded. Well. I, mean you know she she was? You know not cooperative, but she was you know. She had reached the point in her life where I could beat her down a little bit and say look you know I needed need to figure this out. You know and And there was something she needed to resolve for herself. That hadn't been worked out. I think. David Preston get my friend, my best friend, David Press got married. I guess who's in the eighties. And when he got married, she went to his wedding. She was really moved. By the whole ceremony, smashed the glass. They got married under the I. Forget what it's called. The SHUTT-. Yeah, yeah, and it was really nice. It was beautiful. It was a beautiful wedding, and she was really moved by that and she loved David and his wife you know because were good friends. And his wife Rondi helped my mother quite a bit Rondi by the way, just as a coincidence is the person who is behind that whole business of of you know the the the drug treatment centers in Philly with it with a allow jog offenders to get them free. Free, you know treatment. She's. She's been in the news quite a bit. She's really she's amazing person in any case I think that her the wedding between her David Kind of loosened historical. Change from my mother in terms of her life is Jewish girl growing up in the south. And and I was curious about it, and then of course we went and visited her friend that we went to. Suffolk and she began to open up some yeah, were you surprised along the way as she started opening up and sharing more were there? Were there things that really took you? By surprise, you didn't know I mean yeah, but you know. People Change. They evolve a main. She was she. She was not culturally wrapped. In a way that that kept her chain to. The notion of Judaism or She loved her mother. She felt tremendous guilt about leaving her mother by. And she never got over it to dying day. She never got over there. that she left him behind with her abusive screwed up. Father, who who supposedly call himself rabbi. I mean that's juicy shit for you know for the people to ponder, but the fact is people love their parents, and they do the best they can. And the woman many my mother did the best she could. With you know. She was really dealt half a six pack when she came to this country. Because Jews treated like pretty badly in the south, and in America in general. But the fact is that she took everything she could, and did the best she could with within the framework that existed for her. And the result was good mostly for her children. I don't know that my mother ever felt that she was that unique. I think she felt that she was just. She did what any mother who loves her? Children with do and that's the truth of it. Yeah, I'm fascinated also. Because her coming to New York coming to Harlem originally, and then starting church, and introducing you to it. Is so important in your most recent work you know. Dean King Kong though it's a novel, you know. Clearly it's it's just the whole thing is built around.

"I guess that happens early on. You're still in the journalism side of things for a chunkier, but then, but even when I was on the journalism side of things, I always played music. Yeah, I mean I was always taken offline Thursday Friday night and head to gig somewhere. You know I. I was always. Never kept music too far from those always practicing you know, and I did it on the down low I I didn't really talk about it too much. My colleagues want to think I wasn't dedicated to the job you know. What I did do never I. Sometime cells young writers. I would not be hanging around for dinner and coffee, and all the stuff wasting Time Gossiping about whether I would just after the work was done I would go home and I practice. And I find it with music was where have I was Boston DC. I would find out with a final. Who Musicians were who was playing? You know? Ironically. I'd learn more about local news and local events as as a musician I ever learned as a reporter. Nicotine, not truth because you know. When you're reporting you, you're you're stuck. You gotTA. You know you have to put quote. Unquote supposedly must put certain things. And when you when you're musician, you know kicking around you. Oh, you heard this honest checking. See drive the other side of town. It's not there and then yeah, while on this on a saxophone of it. You check him out his keyboard player. You WanNa meet, but he's. He lives over in the singer. She's her cousin just got arrested. You gotta go help her I. Mean you know the stuff that it happens when I was at the post? I remember. I wanted to do a story about the base- Baseball Scout and I saw Ben Bradlee who is the editor of the paper in the hallway. And I went up to you know he was a legend back then. He well, he should have been. And I said to me now WANNA. Go Sia, one of those starbucks baseball scout. He said well. He said, have you talked to Mary? Her dossier was my Yan and she said, go ahead and do it. Mary dollars like the best editor. At in my opinion, she should run the post, but in any case I said I said Mary said go ahead, so he said well, what are you waiting for? He said if I had he said he pointed to the news. He said if I could make everyone in this room. Get up and clear out of here. I would do it right now. He said the news is not here. It's out there. He pointed to the window. And So. That's really what it is. Today you know where we gather news is just. She's terrible. No local news nobody goes out to report while it's happening now. Yes, forced to do it now, but yeah I think we're seeing this just massive new or citizen journalism also sort of like everybody's got a device where the report what's happening in the smallest of the smallest place or or in all the places where? It an maybe a big outlet isn't GonNa send someone nothing wrong with the yeah, now completely agree I mean. I've heard you say something a couple of times in the past about your time they're also which is a journalist becomes cynics, which I'm kind of curious about. Well if you WANNA stay creative. You have to avoid the cynicism that journalism creates. because. John. False! You know it's. It's magnetized toward politics. They kind of go together some in some way they like three fingers of one hand, sweeping the other hand, and you shake hands. Okay with this. That sixteen is with the other forefingers God. Them caught carefully. Because of the cynicism in the blood, and the guts from the first fingers. For six things feed over to the rest of the fingers in your whole hand is bleeding and wounded, and you'll never be able to build a house. That's a horrible metaphor, but my point is that cynicism. is destructive in terms of creativity. And and creativity is what makes one of the things that makes America a very unique and very very great place. so creativity doesn't happen. When you picking a video game about thefts or some other bullshit. It just doesn't happen. Excuse me, it just doesn't happen. You WanNa stay creative. You should read books. Walk the earth. Otherwise never gonNA journalists by comparison do get out and do things, but the level of. Cynicism that you allow into your life as a journalist will. At some point. Simply. Would just pull water on your spark your creative spark. So you have to be careful and that that cynicism dozen happened that rather skepticism can roll in. That's fine. Skepticism is fog.

Composers like Virgil Thomas or whoever I mean, everyone has a different song, and if you're smart, and if you have a liberal arts education, which I'm fortunate enough to have you learn that. If you want to enjoy life, you learn to appreciate all of it. You know I completely agree I think my reference to jazz was more just. And this is a play guitar for most of my life I don't play, but but like. You said it's to me, it's. It's the references more about. Knowing been notes developing a certain amount of crashed, but then holding everything lightly and being responsive to the moment, and like making it about the interactions in the play in the freedom. I mean if you do that. It helps you in the rest of your life. If you can do that and you can get it from Jazz. It helps you everything you do. When I was working at Washington police work with an Edison the Jeff Franken. He later became friends, and he ended up at the new. Yorker, and now he writes books and one day I was at his house jet pulled out, and he turned out to be like a really guitar player I mean. Like when I say good I mean a musician level good, not just like good. Because your friends, you can play I wanNA. Hold your hand by the Beatles I mean he can really play. And it made sense because that's just who he was. He was the president who knew how to listen. But he also knew went to not listening when to speak you know and it showed on the page and his work. So. Music teaches you to listen, and if you're a writer that your job. That's your job to listen to people and to To reflect back to them what to others what you've heard in a way that makes it palatable and makes us care about each other that the You've got gotTA overland end up in Colombia J school, and then out and. I spent the better part of a decade really on the journalism side of things. I mean Boston Globe Was Washington Post the the last place? That was my last stop. Yeah, right and but I guess it was when you were there. At some point along the way, the early seeds of what would eventually become the color of water dropped when you. wrote a piece, I just got curious about your mom and her Jewish background, and then what it was like being growing up there, and that really started out as as something that was published early on in the globe as as as an article. Right you're that happened like back in nineteen. A year or two of my professional career. And I was talking to her and editor at the globe named Allan. He was a very nice guy he was. I guess he was Jewish. I'm pretty sure it was, but can't quite recall his last time recall last night. I could tell you, but in any case. It's a sort of came out that I had somehow come into the knowledge that my mother was Jewish. You know and I said that so many, said billy, and he said well you need to. Look into that you know so. I went home. I, guess it was mother's Day of something I went home for a Holiday Inn I started asking questions and she. You know she was really resistant. and I became more curious. And then you know the the peace peace was created. And I left that alone after that for many years i. Chore With until I Guess Early Nineties say I guess. I started thinking about writing a book. She was getting up in years and. You know life evolved I. Was No longer young whippersnapper house. I guess I'm you know?

"With us. It doesn't matter what you studying college. This matters that you think. Yeah tell me about it, but it's interesting because you I mean you at overland. You studied music music pretty, much. They are studied music and can quote communications. And I didn't use any of. Well I use it all actually. We had A. Was it last year we had Mitch Albom in the studio and I remember asking him I was like. We got we got talking about writing. Then we got talking about music and he's like man I gotTa. Tell you if I could choose one like I. Forget the writing thing I just would. It would have been music all the way if I could have been a rock star that would have been at. Well you know I think the music is for me personally I. Mean if you'd ask him. When I was twenty five I to said yeah, I wanted to just play jazz the rest of my life, but now I realize that what music did me is what I hope it does for my signs in for my little program running my church, and that is it prepares you for a life of labor and learning and enjoyment. I mean there's nothing more enjoyable than driving down the street and listening to. Sonny rollins or the doors or Beethoven, or or anything. That's beautiful. I mean you know. I was listening to hey. Jackson yes, I mean there's nothing more. Classical than enjoying the first. The highest art form of all which I think music is and so. I think the study it just gives you a great appreciation for for life, and for teamwork of a discipline for the things that are important that help. You do whatever you'd like to whatever you like to do I. Think you know most of the? Most of your great scientists and engineers and architects. Attorneys I. Mean a lot of them have great great experience with music and I think that's mute, so I see music is. You know. I could I could suppose could've gone on to just the life of being a musician, but that wasn't enough. Really because music shouldn't be your life, really life should be life Yeah I. Mean You mentioned The kids you're working with now? I guess a at the Church because that was pretty much. Your I mean the early days for you was really. I guess it was really just a big part of your family. Church music books sounds like you're introducting music side also was sort of A. The church needed people to play. That's true. Yeah, well, you know. We grew up in the church in the Baptist showed that we heard that kind of music growing up and we listened to it at home we didn't have you know I grew up in a time when you listen to records and you know, and you only had a certain number of record, so you listen to whatever was on the radio. And whatever wreckage you had at home and I think it gave you a wider Palette in terms of which you draw on later what I drawn later when I became a musician. because. you had to listen to what everybody else listen to also as opposed to listening to the kind of music that you thought you liked. So but yeah I grew up in. You know in the church when we always listen to music swung hard, you know. That sort of heavy. Hearts swing in one thousand nine hundred. Fifty Nine Thousand Six Gospel. That is really really one part of of the so-called African, American musical experience, but it's it's one of the most popular one of the most affecting and Swedish so. It always made music special to me. I I just can't imagine life without music. I I just can't imagine being a writer. Without having music is part of my. Vocabulary you know. Yeah, I almost wonder I mean when you go back and forth when you're working on something between playing composing and writing all the time. On. Do you feel like that likely? You can feel the sensibilities sort of the two interplay with each other. I don't know I. Just do it to keep from going crazy Ya. You, know you you. Only have so much gas in the tank. When you run these characters on the page with they're running your own on the page and you have to get up. You have to move around, but you don't want to go. It's a coffee shop and Start Gossiping with somebody about nothing, so you sit down the peons out. We're going to listen. I mean writing a music she had this. They are about the process of failing continuously. And, so you just learn to accept failure and you absorb it. And then it pushes you to something that's new and hopefully special at different. So the act of just getting your tail kicked every day by these two are forms that you know in not really as good as. People believe to be at. It helps you live keeps you humble and keeps. You keeps you healthy. No. Yeah. I mean it's. It's interesting, also because SORTA well when I look at The two together and it sounds like from what I. Know Your approach to both. You know it's. It's not about structure. It's not about surly building the outline affiliate it in it's. It's about it's jazz like either way. It's jazz absolutely I. Mean, but you know you have to be careful when you say that because okay I saw bruce springsteen one of my life. Back in the eighties he was the meadowlands and I didn't even WanNa go, you know as as like rock and roll you know man. The concert was four hours and it felt like it was a half along. I mean it was. So good I mean you know Clarence climate? But this was when he was you know. I don't know if you've listened to even know who Bruce Springsteen is now they did they do. I saw him play three years at you know what used to be. The meadowlands also for four hours and my mind was blown. Oh, he's just the bad cat. Ridiculous man so I mean, but my point is that. If if it's right, you just feeling and Bruce springsteen got plenty jazz in his music. I mean you know in a he? Doesn't you know? His jazz isn't supposedly like the most sophisticated? But. There's plenty jazz there. I mean what is Jazz. You know you know as as Louis Armstrong said. You have to ask I really don't know. You know music that brings that moves to the heart. That makes you feel good inside. The gives you hope. And you WanNa hug you a neighbor. That's jazz and Bruce in that regard. Bruce Springsteen is loaded myth because he's you know. He spent his entire career trying to make people see the best part of themselves and others, and that's really that's what jazz should do. That's what any good music should do, and that that includes off alums loans of classical music. so. For Me Jazz and Blues and Gospel have been part of my. DNA might musical DNA. But that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate you.

"A Taylor its planes break shot exactly how autobiographical many of his songs are who the Suzanne of fire and rain was and how she died his music might be more confessional in feeling than fact? I mean you could listen to the title track of Sweet Baby James. For most of your life and fully understand the sweetly exhausted deep green and blue emotions it describes without ever knowing that it was an account of James Driving home to North Carolina to meet his nephew his older brother Alex's newborn son also named James her. Maybe that's just me. I mean listen to that song for decades at least once on the very turnpike from stockbridge to Boston that talks about and I definitely understood all the feelings without ever really knowing the story at first American standard seems like something completely different. I mean this is James Taylor singing other people's songs and show tunes hard exactly confessions but look at it this way. American standard is Taylor's first album in five years but hardly his first time playing covers. He's been singing them for a long time. If you don't count his version of the Nineteenth Century Stephen Foster Song Oh Susanna on sweet baby James then you'd have to count his version of Carole. King's you've got a friend on his next album mudslide slim. And then there's his duet with his then wife Carly Simon on Anez and Charlie Fox's Mockingbird in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and his great reworking of the Nineteen Sixty Jimmy Jones. Hit Handyman on. Jt In nineteen seventy seven. I mean he released a whole album called covers in two thousand and eight in the more covers. Ep In two thousand and nine and both of those have a lot of old soul. Aren be and motown songs on them in a way. Those covers our form of autobiography as he explains in break. Shot and talked in depth with me Taylor grew up playing that kind of music alongside his brother. Alex in a band they had called the fabulous corsairs. An American standard tells story in a similar way. These are songs. He grew up hearing. Some were on albums in his parents record collection in North Carolina. Some he heard on family trips to New York City to see Broadway shows a regular of ed organized by his mom. He does a version of Surrey with the fringe on top from Oklahoma on the new album.
